Very nice and scenic area for a drive or plenty of spots to get out and hike around. Fairly smooth dirt road.

We rented a SUV, and one day drove thru Christmas Tree Pass. We are from Wisconsin and this landscape was very new and different to us. I am sure people from the western states would not be impressed but we were!!
